Indiegogo Spotlight: The Rave

Indiegogo Spotlight: The Rave

The Rave

I've never been a "raver", I bow to the gods of metal and dark ambient, but when I saw this campaign on Indiegogo, I was intrigued. The Rave is a short horror film in which people take strange drugs at a rave (shock!) and stumble across "gruesome horrors" after ingesting them.

The film is being created by third year students at the Baltic Film and Media School, and the Indiegogo campaign is hoped to help them with creating the "stunning visuals loyal to the techno rave scene. Without money this would be impossible to realise."

As well as being a horror, the makers hope the film will promote conscientious drug use, as it brings attention to the risks inherent in dosing yourself with unknown compounds and creations.

Watch the Vimeo teaser below. I did, and I was quite taken with the visuals and the aesthetics of what was happening. This film looks like it will be well worth watching when it is finished.
